A commenter on a social networking site which shall remain nameless said that ‘the kids’ (Note the inverted commas) were rioting because they were ‘crying out for food’. I must say that I had no idea that plasma TVs were edible. Does anyone have a recipe for this delicacy? Wide screen TV casserole sounds simply delightful.
The parents of these rioters should be made to read A Clockwork Orange because, as the parents of Alex discovered, these people turn on those closest to them before they start on everyone else.
The owner of a small high street store, bewildered and distressed at what these people had done to her and her small business, said ‘They were like feral rats’.
I call that an insult to feral rats.

Salon.com has an alternative take on the matter:
The untermenschen are always being told to emulate their betters. I guess that’s exactly what they were doing.
